The pandemic has had a disastrous effect on Saint Edmunds. Unfortunately, the centre was closed at the beginning of lockdown. Saint Edmunds do not envisage being able to open before September as many of its referrals come from schools.
LandAid’s £10,000 grant will be used to purchase PPE for all staff and young people. No-one knows what the world will look like once the pandemic is over, however Saint Edmunds want to ensure it can remain open to be able to provide a much needed service to young people.
Saint Edmunds is a charity registered in 1965, originally operating as a homeless hostel in Norwich for young men between the ages of 16-25.
